GPS Satellite Compass OEM Agreement Extended - 17/11/2010
From the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) 2010 exhibition, Hemisphere GPS, Canada, expanded its multi-million dollar OEM agreement with ComNav Marine of Vancouver, Canada. Hemisphere GPS will manufacture the world's smallest (42cm) GPS compass available on the market today under a private branding agreement for ComNav Ltd. The Vector G1 GPS satellite compass will be sold with ComNav's autopilot, radars and chart plotter solutions for pleasure boats and light commercial vessels.
Based on Hemisphere GPS' patented Crescent Vector II technology, Vector G1 calculates reliable heading accuracy of 0.75 degree and 60 centimetre positioning with SBAS corrections while providing heave, pitch, and roll output messages through an integrated tilt sensor and gyro system. Vector G1 supports both NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000 interface standards making it compatible with all connectivity standards found on today's vessels.
ComNav has unveiled the new Vector G1 GPS satellite compass at the METS in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Hemisphere GPS will ship Vector G1 GPS compasses to ComNav in volume beginning early in the first quarter of 2011.Last updated: 27/02/2020
